  • Southern Illinois’ Premier Custom Meat Processing and Butcher Shop

    Everyone is always welcome here at Triple C Meats in Anna, Illinois. Triple C Meats offers a large retail area, where it is still easy to pick up a few things. Our list of animals we prepare for the community includes Hogs, Cattle, Lamb, Goat, and Venison.

    These animals are bought and purchased from the local farmers located throughout our area. When a client comes into our butcher shop to place a meat order, they are always pleasantly surprised at the custom order process that we offer.

    Our professionals will walk you through the whole process of having your meat prepared and packaged. The minute details to you, are some of the most important to us. Once all the cuts are finished and packaged, we will freeze it and call to notify you that your meat will be ready for pick up. When you come to receive all the meat you ordered, we recommend that you bring coolers, boxes, or baskets to help transport all that meat home. We do have boxes on-site, but they are first come first serve.

  • Details About the Meat

    When it comes to butchering a hog or cow there is a standard that varies from animal to animal.

    A whole hog will weigh 285 lbs. live weight. After the butchering of the animal, there will be a hanging weight of 210 lbs. You can expect a take-home weight of 130 lbs. The variation of the hogs will affect the fat to lean ratio. This can mean that the bacon and the chops might not be the same every time.

    A whole beef will weigh 1300 lbs. live weight. The hanging weight of the cow will be 780 lbs. with a take-home weight of 460 lbs. Just like the hog, the beef will vary from animal to animal between the fat and meat.

    Any cut that you requested not to have in your order will do towards ground pork or sausage for the hog, and ground beef also known as a hamburger for the beef portion.

  • Goat and Lamb Processing

    Goat and lamb processing is a little bit trickier to work around than the hog or cow. The goat and lamb are much smaller animals with less fat and meat available on them. On average when a customer brings a lamb in to be butchered, we can usually get two legs, anywhere from 8-12 lamb chops (varies on the size of the lamb), 2 racks of ribs, 4 shanks, ground lamb, liver, stew meat, and a kidney. Sometimes you will get more meat than expected and others it will be less. It all depends on the size of the animal.
